Mary Ann, Aunt Hazel and Family:

First of all in case you don’t remember me, I was married to Greg Littleton. I was deeply shocked and saddened to learn of Carl’s death. A young life called home too soon! I have so many fond memories of all of you during my marriage to Greg and even afterwards. You have all had a very special place in my heart and I was proud to be part of your family!

I want you to know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. It’s just so unimaginable to know that he is no longer here … however, he is with His

Father in heaven as well as all his family members who have gone before him. I know he will be sadly missed … even by your doggies. They grieve too!!

May God continue to bless all of you during this most difficult time. Remember God does not give us more than we can handle. He is faithful and just and will put His loving arms around you and comfort you. Just trust in Him!

Again, please know you have my deepest sympathy! Love to all of you!
